Two of One Direction's members were pulled over by cops in New York City, causing a traffic jam on the busy street. Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were being chauffeured through Manhattan on Wednesday, December 5 but Tomlinson did not stay inside the car all the time.
Captured on video, Tomlinson stood up through the sunroof of a moving SUV while filming himself and lip syncing to an inaudible song. The boys presumably were filming for the upcoming 3-D movie which Horan helped to direct. The next thing they knew, two police officers stopped the car and questioned them.
"Louis and the lads are having a great time in the Big Apple and want to capture every minute," a source told The Sun. "Louis was only standing through the sunroof momentarily but it was long enough to catch the eye of the cops. He may have found it funny but motorists stuck in a traffic jam certainly didn't."
They were not charged. The cops let them go with a warning but curiously, one of them took a picture of Horan and Tomlinson.
Another One Direction member got into trouble in New York while visiting the Empire State Building. Liam Payne slammed the manners of security staff in the building on Twitter but ESB's media team fired back. "@Real_Liam_Payne bad behaviour not accepted at ESB. No, our security does not know who you are, and does not care," they tweeted.
Payne deleted his previous comment and then clarified, "Seems there was a bit of a mix up when I was at the empire state. Its all good. Sorry for confusion looking fwd to next timeeeee! I would like to formally apologise to the Empire State Building security team and its owners for our misunderstanding the other night. I didn't mean to cause anyone any problems and hope that I can come back again for a visit again in the future :)."
